Highway One

Call it what you will. Princes, Pacific, Bruce, Eyre, Bass, Stuart, Great Northern, Savannah Way, but Highway One which encompasses many state highways is 14,500 kms long. It is the longest national highway in the world and known to most as ‘The Big Lap’. In comparison the Trans Siberian Highway is 11,000kms long.

From deserts to snow capped mountains, from dry savannah to lush rainforests, from bustling cities to remote outback roadhouses, from multi lane highway to dirt road this is a road that has everything including a lot of roadkill.

    1. Not yet Margaret. We missed the northern bit from Katherine up to Darwin when I broke my ankle. And we certainly won’t do the several hundred km stretch up in the Gulf that is unmade. There’s no chance that I could talk Woody into that!
